Belknap Campus undergoes a transformation
In recent years the UofL Belknap Campus has experienced a new look with a pedestrian gateway and entrance at the corner of Third Street and Eastern Parkway, a new plaza and sculpture court near Miller Information Technology Center, a new entrance to the north end of campus, between the School of Music and the College of Education and Human Development, the Freedom Park project at Second Street and Cardinal Boulevard, and renovation of The Oval in front of Grawemeyer Hall, including replacing the roadway surface with brick pavers, lighting the hall’s exterior, installing an irrigation system and replacing sod. Improvements also include new lighting and landscapes along Warnock St. at Floyd St. New student housing includes University Pointe, located on S. Third St. near Community Park. While these projects will greatly enhance the overall Belknap appearance and student experience, they will also improve student safety and provide more convenient access onto and around campus.
